Partnership Working is the way forward…

Following government decisions in relation to departmental responsibilities,
Apprenticeship funding streams have been rationalised to provide a smaller
management base for the Skills Agency Contract Managers.  Small companies such as ours have been required to enter a new era in terms of contract management and to this end we are pleased to announce that we have chosen to form a Partnership with Chamber Training (Humber) Ltd.  Our decision to do this is based upon the quality, credibility and sustainability of Chamber Training and an excellent working relationship already in place.

As an Employer (or learner) you will experience no change in current practices and delivery however, The Skills Funding Agency will continue to seek your opinion through the Framework for Excellence surveys and our Recruitment Manager will guide you through this process if necessary.

We feel that the Partnership with Chamber Training will provide a solid platform for moving forward and delivering quality training across the Humber sub region and we hope we can enjoy the continued support of you – our valued Employers.

Apprenticeships Week 2011

Apprenticeships Week 2011 begins from Monday 7th Feburary. The event promotes Apprenticeship courses throughout the UK.

To coinside with the launch of our Twitter feed,  SouthBank Training will be tweeting a series dubbed “A week in the life of an Apprentice”. Our Scunthorpe Centre Apprentice, Anthony, will be tweeting during the day. He will be giving an insight on his daily work and how the Employer Led Apprenticeship programme is delivered.

Remember to follow us @STBltd


With fewer University places available,additional Government funding is being released to give an extra 50,000 people the opportunity to gain an Apprenticeship.

If you are considering taking on an Apprentice, now is a great time, as thousands of school leavers begin looking for their first steps into a career.

With the recent success in the country’s high GCSE and A-Level results, now is the time for businesses to recruit an Apprentice from the pool of talent out there.  With the release of additional funding employers can also seek to train their existing staff and recruit junior managers, offering quality roles to A-Level students as an alternative to the university clearing process.

“We will increase the number of Apprenticeship places, and we are committed to improving the quality of Apprenticeships to make them better suited to the needs of employers and learners.  The Government’s decision to redeploy £150 million of  our savings in 2010-11, creating an additional 50,000 places, demonstrates our commitment to high-quality, employer-owned Apprenticeships” (Vincent Cable: Secretary of State, Business, innovation and Skills)

Recruiting young people has never been easier. ‘Apprenticeship Vacancies’ is the official online recruitment system for Apprenticeships in England and is managed by the National Apprenticeship Service.
The system enables quality vacancies from employers like you to be viewed and applied for nationally by thousands of candidates that register onto our system, making it easy for you to attract and recruit Apprentices.

Apprenticeships are a great way for young people to start their career and many are keen to take this route.  Each Apprenticeship framework is developed by employers (through Sector Skills Councils and Sector Bodies) to suit the sector in which they sit.  There is empirical evidence that Apprenticeships bring real value to employers, learners and the economy as a whole.

Potential Apprentices can register with ‘Apprenticeship Vacancies’, an online recruitment tool that matches Apprentices with prospective employers.  They can search for local and national vacancies in their required job role and level.

This system also has several key benefits to employers:

  • It is a national system, it opens up your vacancy to a wider pool of candidates actively interested in Apprenticeships
  • A diverse range of private and public sector employers have already advertised their vacancies including British Gas, Ford, New Look, Sky and Cable&Wireless
  • Flexibility in who manages the whole recruitment process, your learning provider or you
  • The options to direct candidates who see your vacancy on the system to apply directly to your own website job page
  • You can search to find learning providers who deliver Apprenticeships in the sector you want to recruit for
  • The system is supported by a dedicated National Apprenticeship Service team across England

Framework for Excellence

YOUR EXPERIENCE, YOUR SAY:  Make a difference to how we deliver training to employers

We wish to thank all our employers who have taken part in the Framework for Excellence survey so far this year.  This important survey is in its second year and is part of the Framework for Excellence initiative. This Framework will provide a new national performance measure to ensure high standards in all educational and training establishments.

The aim of the survey is to ensure that we can provide and continually improve on the services which employers deem most valuable and, in turn, respond to any changes in your needs as efficiently as possible. SouthBank Training Ltd would like to thank you for your time and co-operation and are grateful for your feedback, which in all cases will remain anonymous. The survey period runs between October 2009 to 31st December 2009.
